Good News from Green Island

Lots of activity has taken place on the Island in Bellows Falls Vermont these past few months.  At the end of 2011 SVG purchased 30 Island Street.  In March Compass School students as part of their Winterm Project helped clean-up the building, removed damaged drywall and secured broken windows.  The building is in need of some major renovations so SVG is in the process of seeking funding.  We are currently working with VEDA (VT Economic Development Agency) to explore a low-interest loan.
SVG is in discussion with 3 potential tenants to occupy 30 Island Street when renovations are complete.
SVG also has master leases with 21 Island Street, 33 Bridge Street and 54 Depot Street.  For more info on these properties:

Putney School’s Earth Day Celebration

SVG board members Gary, Dave & Anne along with staff member Dani had an informational table at the Putney School on April 22nd.  The Earth Day celebration was well attended with live music, food, crafts and workshops.  The SVG table was busy all day as we shared the Green Island Project with many event attendees.  The response was overwhelmingly positive resulting in several new memberships.  We also spoke with other groups and found a common thread of taking action on a local level to revitalize the economy while reducing negative impact on the environment.  There are many good things happening in our area and many good people making a difference.  A very positive, energizing day!
